Massive RGB laser units placed throughout the park, by Nu Salt Lasers, experts who have presented their laser light shows at Euro Disney in France, and the Global Arts Festivals held annually in San Francisco and Miami.
With lasers hidden throughout the park and on stage, they will present a major laser light show that will project miles into the Cranbrook night sky. Choreographed to music, the lasers will light up the park, presenting symbolic images of Canada’s historic moments and Cranbrook. To finish it all off, fireworks will light up the night sky.
